When it comes to fitness smartwatches, it doesn't get better than the Apple Watch. Our review of the latest (and greatest) model put it at "the top spot for fitness smartwatches", awarding it a coveted five stars in our official review

While the Apple Watch 5 might be top of the heap, the Apple Watch Series 3 still remains head-and-shoulders over many of its competitors, even at a reduced price rate for being older technology. So when we saw Target had reduced the price and the Apple Watch Series 3 to a wallet-friendly $199.99, we had to seize the opportunity. Check out the deal in full below:

Target has slashed $30 off the price of the best fitness smartwatch around. Even though it's not the latest iteration, the Apple Watch still has the whole suite of fitness features and ergonomic design that makes it so successful. With GPS functionality and an optical heart rate sensor, you can track your runs, swims, yoga sessions and loads more. 

Apple Watch Series 3 deal: Why get one?

The Apple Watch's suite of fitness features is almost without equal. It's swimproof, with 3ATM water resistance, it tracks your heart rate, sleep patterns, position during runs, allows you to take calls and operate your music with the touch of a button. 

It's got the best features of the Series 5 with a slightly smaller version of the Watch's trademark pebble display, making it a slim, unobtrusive and stylish workout companion. It uses the same WatchOS as the Series 5, so you're looking at very little difference in functionality for a lot cheaper, especially at this great discount. 

With up to 18 hours battery life, the Apple Watch Series 3 is a fantastic deal, costing around half the price as a fully-kitted out Series 5. For Apple users wanting a great fitness smartwatch on a budget, this is the kit to choose.

Plus, as of December 2020 it's compatible with Apple Fitness+, Apple's all-new workout platform that's worth the hype.
